Description
Is predicted to enable hormone activity. Acts upstream of or within camera-type eye development; inner ear development; and nervous system development. Predicted to be located in extracellular region. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; digestive system; heart; integument; and pleuroperitoneal region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including alcohol dependence; congenital leptin deficiency; fatty liver disease (multiple); liver disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple). Orthologous to human LEP (leptin).
